The Police Service has installed a new state-of the-art facility at its Criminal Investigations Department (CID) headquarters in Accra to assist in the identification of criminals and suspects.

The facility, known as Interrogation Room is a specially designed glass room that makes it impossible for the suspects to see those identifying them during identification parade.

Installed about a month ago, it would be replicated in the regional and district headquarters of the Police Service throughout the country. The Director of Police Public Affairs, DSP Kwasi Ofori, who revealed this to the Times newspaper in Accra said, it would greatly enhance the work of the police in identifying suspects. He said it is a purposely designed room to enhance identification of suspects and also increase public confidence in the procedure. He said the new facility also has a room for interrogation quite similar to what pertains in the developed countries.

In deciding on the new mode of identification, he said, the police administration took into consideration the view of the public, who have expressed reservation about the risk to which they were put in the process of identifying suspects.
